Enhanced nighttime sensitivity

The Forward FN455S uses proprietary software, cutting-edge electronic components and signal-processing algorithms to deliver one of the industry’s highest values of sensitivity in infrared spectrum (nighttime sensitivity). The result is a device offering flawless passive-mode performance in deep twilight, even night, without switching on IR illumination. High sensitivity in the range of 900-950nm makes it possible to use the Forward FN455S with invisible IR Illuminators.

Over 500m nighttime viewing range

High nighttime sensitivity, high resolution display and sensor, wide selection of brightness and contrast settings, quality optics and a powerful built-in IR Illuminator for operation in total darkness make the Forward FN455S the perfect tool for detecting large quarry at distances of 450-500 meters.

Easy transformation of an day scope or binoculars into a night vision device

To install the Forward FN onto the front optical bell of a daylight spotting scope or binoculars, adapters of various mounting size are used. The adapter permanently attaches to the scope’s bell. This allows quick installation of the Forward FN attachment in front of the lens for nighttime observation. When the attachment is not used, the adapter accommodates a protective cap to protect the spotting scope lens in the daytime.

“Invisible” IR illuminator with 700 mW power with adjustable light spot position

A new Pulsar Ultra-X940S removable IR illuminator emits 940 nm in the “invisible” range. The power level of the IR illuminator varies between 175, 350 and 700 mW depending on the required illumination intensity for the particular type of observation. The optical part of the illuminator provides flexible adjustment of the light flux direction for full and uniform illumination of the observation area.

Integrated video and sound recorder

Capturing still images and video is seamless with the Forward FN’s built-in video recorder. High quality videos will also record sound so you can capture your full experience whilst using the device.  Image and video content is stored internally and can easily be transferred to PC/laptop via wired connection or wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet with the iOS and Android compatible Stream Vision App.

Quick-change long-life rechargeable battery backs

Forward FN uses an advanced self-contained autonomous B-Pack power supply system. The rechargeable battery IPS7 (6.5 Ah) fits into a special slot in the device’s body without protruding and delivers over 7 hrs. of operation from a single charge in the maximum consumption mode. Higher-powered IPS10 (10Ah) and IPS14 (13.2Ah) Battery Packs are also optionally available. Quick-release and wireless design, long operating time are the major highlights of this power system.

Wi-Fi. Integration with IOS and Android devices

The built-in WiFi module connects the device with either Android or iOS smartphones using the Stream Vision 2 mobile app. This combination opens up a wide range of options: wireless device software updates, real-time image transmission to the mobile device screen, remote control digital functions and much more. Users registered in the application are provided with cloud storage space for photos and videos taken with a digital or thermal imaging device. An important feature is that the device is still compatible with the previous, first version of the Stream Vision application.

Instant start-up

Instant start-up

Forward FN starts up within three seconds after ON button is pressed.

Fully waterproof IPX7

Fully waterproof IPX7

The Forward FN is fully waterproof featuring an IPX7 level of protection. The device is able to operate in precipitation of any intensity and survive a short-term submersion.

Software sensitivity enhancement algorithm SumLight

Software sensitivity enhancement algorithm SumLight

SumLight function increases sensor sensitivity, which allows passive observation (with IR off) in low light at night. The software automatically activates algorithms, such as summing adjacent pixel signals, frame addition, thus increasing sensitivity while preserving sufficient image quality.

Updatable Software

Updatable Software

A smartphone, free mobile application Stream Vision 2 and Internet access is all one needs to check updates and to install new firmware. This allows a hunter to receive new features and bug fixes for a Forward FN he/she already owns.

Operating Temperatures from -25 to +50°C

Operating Temperatures from -25 to +50°C
